Fruits and vegetables are highly
perishable. The sale of these pro
ducts cannot be long deferred. There
fore, in selling to cash buyers, or in
consigning for sale in the large mar
kets, it is essential that quality be
good, grading uniform, and the ap
pearance of the package attractive
both to the trade and to the ultimate
buyer, if we are to get the best
Many changes in marketing condi
tions have taken place during the
past ten or fifteen years. I am won
dering if growers in the Carolines
and Virginia have kept up with these
changes and are successfully meet
ing new conditions.
.The day has long since passed
when our strawberries, lettuce, beans,
peas, cucumbers, tomatoes and canta
loups are welcomed on eastern mar
kets as luxuries to be paid for at lux
ury prices. The produce grown in
this section is now forced to actively
compete with produce from many
States in the Union and from foreign
countries. All of the usual vegetables
are now,, to be found iivany4arge city
market at all times during the year.
This condition is making it difficult
for theaverage and below the aver
age grower to make a living out of
a business that formerly netted good
Without intending to find fault, I
believe that all growers need an
exact knowledge of the details that
should be observed in growing and
preparing each crop for1 market; and
further than this the community and
roeotioh should bear a reputation tor
selling good produce and for .observ
ing honest business methods. -The in-1
dividual grower standing alone, no
matter how experienced, is working
'4 under serious handicaps if his lot is
placed, in a community where grow
en and shippers are careless in ob
serving the niceties of present day
inarKet demands, xnrougn coopera
tiye effort only, in the opinion of the
wKter, "will the growers of highly
perishable crops ever be able to sue
cessfully meet the competition of the
many- highly ..organized truck grow
ing; and .marketing districts that are
now scattered over the United States.
: In referring to the changes to be
expected during the next quarter of
a century, a recent writer had the
following to say:
"There are those who think the
day of the small grower is about
ever. Those who hold this belief
think that production in the near
future will largely be under the con
trol of large operators who can use
labor-saving machinery and other
means of reducing the cost of pro
duction. "It is our opinion that we are
passing into a period of the survival
of the fittest; that the grower who
can produce the best quality products
most economically and can place
them on the market to befit advant
age and in the most attractive form
will be the one who will survive, be
he a large or a small operator."
' 1939 NEW YORK FAIR'S TWO MUE AMUSEMENT LOOP

NEW YORK (Special). "The 1939 New York World's Fair has
planned to have the largest area and the greatest number and variety of
amusements ever provided for any exposition in the world," announces
Grover Whalen, President of the Fair Corporation, "but let it be under
stood, too, that we are already assured of producing a fair that will be
remembered for its bold treatment of today's problems and for its path
finding to the World of Tomorrow." .
The accompanying photograph shows the design of the Fair's two
mile, 280-acre amusement tone at released at the time of Mr. Whalen's
announcement The sector is being laid out with a greater visitor capacity
than that of any amusement park in the world. Following an entirely new
pattern that lends itself to the development of new and novel amusement
and entertainment features, the sector is featured by the two-mile looped
thoroughfare, flanked on one side by a continuous facade 70 feet high and
on the other by thje more open and landscaped area extending to the east
shore of Meadow Lake.
The upper end of the lake-shore region will be dominated by a
$1,600,000 State amphitheatre with a marine stage for presentation of
aquatic shows, operas, pageants and extravaganzas of all sorts. On the
far side of the lake, as sketched, will be every conceivable kind of show,
spectacle, device, ride, and eating place.
A Banquet of 1468
In 1468 two British statesmen
were hosts at a banquet which must
have hit an all-time high for lavish
feasts. An ancient cook book that is
a prized possession of Harvard Uni
versity's Widener library records
that the following was consumed:
Six thousand animals, 500 fish, 31,
000 birds, 6,000 jelly dishes, 6,000
custards, 2,000 pies and 400 barrels
of ale and wine.
